Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Rodale Institute! By contributing your time and talents, you’re helping us continue our important work.

At our headquarters in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, we welcome year-round volunteers to help with the farm’s many projects. This could mean gardening, working events, assisting at the Garden Store and Visitor Center… but our opportunities range far and wide. Did you know that volunteers can lead cooking demonstrations at farmers’ markets? Or help with work in our Communications, Development, and Administration departments?

In an effort to slot our volunteers into the most appropriate positions and create the best experience for you, we’d greatly appreciate your contact information and answers to the questions below. Your feedback and information will go a long way toward finding just the right spot for you at Rodale Institute.


Please note: Filling out this form means you are applying to volunteer at our Kutztown, PA farm only. If you’re interested in assisting at another location, please visit Locations – Rodale Institute. Currently, only select sites have volunteer opportunities, but we encourage you to reach out to them for more information.
